I have heard of software that is capable of doing it. I think it was used to
trace the unibomber here, but could be wrong.

A number that you call and then can trace you while you are connected? Sure, the emergency police/fire/hospitals in the US are able to triangulate a person's position when they call in from a cell phone.

My Treo 600 has a gps type unit in it. It has a setting called 'Location Privacy'. If it is turned off, anybody can find the location of my phone. If it is turned on, only emergency services can find the location of the phone.

Its one of those things that is meant to help, but it also could be used in a bad way.

I have location privacy turned on. For all I know, it does nothing and everybody can still find me. Not knowing how it truly works, I am just going by ignorance and hoping it does what it says.

There's quite a few - though they need to be 'registered' to the phone using an SMS message:

Here are some:
